The neighbourhood

Centrally located in the heart of Melbourne’s Art precinct, minutes walk to the NGV, ACCA, Federation Square, Flinders Street station, Eureka Towers, Botanic Gardens. Sturt Street is reasonably quiet: with minimal foot and road traffic. There is great access to the essentials: a supermarket with bottle shop is a 3 minute walk just across the road, and plenty of dining options with restaurants/ home delivery/ takeaway food options within 10 minutes at Southbank.

Getting around

Getting around is easy, with Flinders Street Station 10 minutes walk away with all trains feeding into Melbourne’s suburbs north, east, south and west from this central hub, St Kilda Rd trams 5 mins walk, or the Number 1 tram right outside the door. Walking to Southbank promenade, or Melbourne’s Cbd are 5-10 minutes away, and bike hire is available close by. This central location makes exploring Melbourne easy.

The apartment is set in a quiet block, where the neighbours are all respectful of noise levels: parties and loud music are not allowed. The body corporate is keen to keep the relaxing nature of the block: as such fines are imposed on guests who don't respect the rules. So whilst it is definitely not a party place: it is a relaxing place to get away, relax and enjoy exploring Melbourne.

I booked this place for my parents who were visiting me for the weekend. My parents had a wonderful stay! The place is centrally located and close to public transport, but still secluded - offering both convenience and privacy. Alan and Jess were prompt and clear in their communication which made the check-in process very easy, especially for my parents who have had limited experience with Airbnb. The apartment itself is clean and has all the amenities you would need for a short stay. Highly recommended - thanks Alan and Jess!

This is a perfect spot for a stay in Melbourne. So close to the city, you can walk in 5-10minutes or catch a quick tram (2 mins). A very comfortable bed, nice facilities, and very cool decor - lots of nice, original art in most rooms, plus heaps of movies on a hard-drive to just sit and chill. An IGA nearby for food etc, the apartment has kitchen facilities and all cutlery etc. For the fitness fanatics, or just to have a look at the spectacular gardens, run the Tan track, just over St. Kilda rd. If you prefer more space than a hotel, being a short walk from the city and world-class restaurants at Crown, Alan & Jess's place is perfect...plus there is a pool in the middle of the complex. The ideal spot in Melbourne, we can't recommend enough!! Thanks again Alan & Jess!

Alan & Jess User ProfileAlan & Jess is a superhost.

We are an Australian couple living in Central Victoria near the goldfields town of Castlemaine. Al is a musician and manages a local cafe, and Jessie is a visual artist and designer. Our home is just over an hour from Melbourne and we can always be contacted via phone, or be on hand when needed.

We love living in the country amongst a bush setting, and equally enjoy a Melbourne fix: seeing live music, exploring the great restaurants, cafes and bars, going to exhibitions and events, and generally enjoying the melting pot that is Melbourne.

Our haven in the arts precinct is such an easy and relaxing way to enjoy Melbourne, and we love visiting it occasionally - we hope you do too. We really enjoy travelling in general, and have set it up with all the essentials we find we look for to make it a homely stay. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
